Lightning Lectures is a series of short talks taking place online during the autumn months to promote emerging voices and the culture of Irish architecture, as well as an opportunity to present unbuilt or unbuildable projects. The format is to have 10 speakers presenting 10 slides in 10 minutes, with no limit to the content, except that it is not a built project (yet!?). We encourage drawings, diagrams, sketches, models, conceptual works, artworks, works of fiction, philosophies, theories, actions, activations, ideologies, interpretive dance, visions and imaginations; the form of communication is open to interpretation.
